Stop making excuses not to do a boudoir shoot!

Today’s post has been a long time coming. I hear excuses all of the time from women about why they can’t do a boudoir shoot. I’ll say this: all of these excuses are simply B.S.! I’m a huge believer in loving yourself right now in this moment. If you aren’t quite there yet, I can help you move forward with some self love and appreciation. So, without further ado, here are…


The top 5 bullsh!t excuses women have for not doing boudoir shoots:

I need to lose 5 or 10 lbs first.

This is probably the lamest excuse! I say this because it is very easy to remedy. Choosing outfits to flatter your shape is essential, but more importantly the right posing, lighting and angles will do WONDERS for your figure. I do encourage you to treat yourself with love and kindness before the shoot, which involves exercise, eating well and getting adequate rest and hydration.

I don’t have a boyfriend or a husband.

Boudoir is for YOU. Realizing your beauty is one of the most incredible things a woman can experience. Having amazing portraits of yourself looking absolutely ravishing is life changing.

I’m not photogenic.

It’s possible to take a beautiful photo of every woman on planet earth, it only takes the right photographer! Coaching and directing is a huge part of what I do, and is essential even in the images that appear candid. Coaching allows you to relax, so you know EXACTLY what to do and how to do it, and you won’t be feeling awkward in front of the camera.

I don’t know how to be sexy. I’m shy.

Awesome! In fact, I find it easier to photograph women who don’t have preconceived ideas on how to look sexy. I know just the right cues to capture candid images. This makes it seem effortless, and I promise to never say, “OK, act sexy now!”.

I don’t own any lingerie, and garters and stockings aren’t really my thing.
